Since You… [POEM]

there have been others,
since you
but none like
or even similar
just differences
and others familiar
encounters
occupiers
opportunists
observers,
assumers
all my obsession
distractions
deviations
deflections,
consumers
all, my lessons
confession:
none of them as good as you
in thinking I needed
to be rescued
or just given a rest
from you
because I’d only known us
because my best, was true
because I guessed, to lose

there have been moments
since you
that were lonely
but not alone
comfortable
but not at home
there, but somewhere gone
where I was
and where I wanted to be
two different places
what I had
and what I wanted
two different things
a contradiction assured,
hypocrisy

you still owe me
despite
and I want my morning,
fortnight
times two
in perpetuity
until the months go away
swept under the door
of eternity
while the sun burns away
and the moon gives chase
to some other planet
and ours is left stranded
like me
to determine
that there is nothing better
than being in sync

since you
decided it better us not be
I’ve discovered it worse,
instead of what got me
and I’ve been thinking,
about it
and what it all means
ever since you.
